The Best Type of Air Compressors for Agriculture

With over 50,000 farms that cover 10 million acres of farmland, Michigan is the second most agriculturally diverse state. Compressed air plays a critical role in growing, processing and delivering a wide variety of produce, dairy, poultry and meat products.

When considering a compressor, it’s important to understand required horsepower, usage frequency and energy consumption in order to ensure efficient operations. Also consider if the installation will need to be stationary or portable. Most of the “tools of the trade” including tractors, crop sprayers, water pumps, pneumatic equipment, ventilation and irrigation require compressed air.

Michigan Air offers several compressor options designed specifically for the ag industry—compressors that are:

  • Durable
  • High performing
  • Energy-efficient
  • Low cost of ownership

Our system engineers understand what’s required to provide reliable compressed air for agricultural applications and can recommend the best compressor(s) to meet your needs. Here are a few of our most popular compressors for agriculture:

Rotair Portable Compressor D90KA

In an age where most diesel powered portable air compressors are tasked with only running one air tool, why invest up to 50% more for a larger air compressor which most likely would be oversized for the majority of your jobs. The Rotair D90KA tow behind portable air compressor provides 100 psi, the same as a 185cfm.  The D90 can handle most farm-related taks while also saving you money because it’s more fuel efficient then a 185 cfm.
